Last week I met my friend Michele who is also in the RR that I am participating in at Starbuck's. She had to pass off Irene's journal to me. I had done some shopping earlier in the day and found the greatest tissue paper with chili peppers on it and I also found some great poppy napkins. That very same afternoon I started working in Irene's journal. Irene lives in California, hence chili peppers and poppies seemed appropriate. Fast forward to the weekend and I went garage sale-ing. I found the best old calendar with Japanese woodblock prints. Irene is Japanese-American, perfect I thought. So here in her dos-a-dos journal is what I have come up with in rather short order. I had the whole month of June to complete it and it is already done and posted by June 2! Enjoy Irene!
